Introducing the "Synthetic Blend" "Y" (Yellow) series DRUM Type polishing pads,and Wash / Applicator Pads

The latest, most advanced development in DRUM type polishing Pad technology.

In addition to our high quality "HD" (High Density) Cotton Industrial DRUM TYPE polishing pads, we are excited to release a new kind of polishing pad. A revoloutionary breakthrough in polishing pad design & construction. After several years of intensive research and many trials using dozens of combinations of materials, we have finally developed what is the most advanced & versatile pad for use with the DRUM type industrial polishing machines. The new "Y" series pads benefit from a propriatary blend of synthetic and natural fibers. This "Blend" allows large surface polishing with consistant surface temperatures. "Warmer" than wool or cotton but "cool" enough to completely prohibit surface overheating. The "Y" series pads give an unparalled & consistant finish, on a wide variety of surface types, using a wide variety of polishing compounds, and at the same time, providing unparalled pad longevity and durability.

This is the DRUM TYPE polishing pad to use, for the best all round performance. Versatile: for use in "Cutting" operations (using appropriate "cutting" compounds) & excellent in "Finishing" operations, (using appropriate "finishing" compounds), on all surfaces, painted, composite, acrylics, and bare metals.
